State of the Union - Statistics

No, this actually has nothing to do with politics. It is simply a look at words and their length and how often they appear, nothing more.

Speech Length (in Minutes) : 71 minutes
Speech Length (in words) : 7,032

Average: 99.04 Words per minute

Longest Word(s): Counterterrorism(used once) , transcontinental (used once)

Average Word Length : 4.75 characters

There were 80 applause breaks

The President Mentioned Republicans 10 times, while only mentioning his own party 8 times.

Make comments if there is something you wanted to know about the speech and I will look into getting that question answered.
